No, it's for sure a scam. In effect, there isn't a single Amarillo seed out there in the world-
every Amarillo plant is a female (cone producing)! Even if an Amarillo female was pollinated by
a wild m...

I got an email from a friend with a link to an Ebay auction selling "amarillo gold" hops seeds.
Now the uncertainties of m/f growing from seed aside, what is amarillo gold? Is it similar in

I'll share the recipe too. I think this is what I used, it was meant to be a one time brew so I
didn't write anything down either. So this is mostly from memory. I know the 1lb flaked barley

TL;DR at the endWife and I had a kid last August. She was stuck in the hospital for a while due
to C Section and the weekend (weekend covering physicians rarely discharge on the weekend fyi).
I took t...
Posted in thread: How many batches before you bought a wort chiller? on 10-30-2012 at 03:36 AM
I did at least a dozen batches before I got sick of dropping $5 on ice for brewday. Realized
for the $60 I'd spent on ice, I could've bought a good amount of copper tubing and made a
chiller. So I did...

What's the worst case? Home brewers drink their mistakes.And this is 100% true. If you've got
the ingredients on hand, BREW IT! I've made some good beers that were "leftovers mash" brews.
I've made so...

I'm not THAT familiar with fuggle but I know someone that experimented with a fuggle IPA and it
did not turn out well at all. That strain doesn't have the flavor/aroma of the hops normally
used in IPA...

I transferred the wort out of the bucket and into a carboy. Not even calling it secondary
because that wasn't my purpose. Excessive trub in the fermenter left what looked like lingering
high krausen. ...
Posted in thread: Ok to pitch a starter made w/ stirplate? on 10-17-2012 at 01:17 AM
I usually do 2L starters and unless it's a lighter style, I pitch the whole flask. I'll cold
crash a 2L starter for wheat, belgian, american pales. Most of what I brew is in the
1.080-1.120 OG range s...

Basement is pretty much a constant 64 year round. Even with a vigorous fermentation like this,
it rarely breaks 74-75f. Usually they're between 68-72. I've never had any issues as far as I
can tell wi...
